Come on in and join the run around
got to get yourself all the way down

Come on in the water's warm, we're waiting for you now
come on in and take a plunge and see if you can fall

I need it so bad
I need it so
I need it so bad
I need it so bad

Come on in and join the water down
got to get yourself up off the ground

You know I can't escape this world, you know I can't escape this world
what it is I can absorb, what it is I can absorb

I need it so bad
I need it so
I need it so bad

and on my own I can't escape you all
and on my own I can't escape you all
and on my own I can't escape you all

The world belongs belongs to me
the world belongs belongs to me
the world belongs belongs to me
the world belongs to me

The world belongs belongs to me
the world belongs belongs to me, yeah

I need it so bad
I need it so
I need it so bad
I need it so
I need it so bad

And on my own I can't escape you
and on my own I can't embrace you
and on my own I can't escape you all, yeah
not at all
not at all
not at all

    General CommentThis is obviously about drugs. Nothing to do "Speed Kills." Don't get them confused.

    General CommentOfficially released on the Mellon Collie reissue, though it was part of the Pastichio Medley. Drugs. That's it.

    General CommentSuch a great track. The many interviews I've seen of him he comes across as anti-drugs besides from the gish days when they were taking alot of LSD. But then again this was the MCIS era so who knows for certain, this song imo is certainly about a form of speed/meth.
